Amicus Brief with the Supreme Court of Mississippi in Support of Charter School Students’ Right to Access State and Local Education Funding
The National Alliance submitted an amicus brief to the Mississippi State Supreme Court in support of appellees in case regarding public charter school students’ right to access state and local education funding.
In 2017-18, more than 7,000 charter schools enroll nearly 3.2 million students. National charter school enrollment increased by more than 150,000 students between fall 2016 and fall 2017—a five percent increase.
This paper examines what can be done at the federal level to provide additional resources to charter schools to access school buildings, and to create incentives for states to address inequities in the allocation and funding of buildings.
